Senior Design Highlights

The STOLMA Senior Design Team is designing, building and testing a six-passenger, short take-off and landing airplane intended for missions applications.

The STOLMA aircraft design was based upon the Zenair CH 801-HD experimental aircraft. The STOLMA team modified the CH 801-HD design to allow for increased cargo capacity, the ability to transport medical litters and the capability to deploy parachute-rescue personnel.
